Since departing the role of Christian Grey in “Fifty Shades of Grey,” “Sons of Anarchy” star Charlie Hunnam has avoided making comments or public appearances. That is, until Saturday (October 19), when he joined his fellow “Sons of Anarchy” co-stars at the second annual Hogs for Heart event, which benefits One Heart Source Education Programs.
When asked by E! News how he’s been since the announcement he was leaving the role, Charlie replies, “I am doing good. I am just really concentrating on work. It’s been a really busy time.”
It sounds like even without the movie, Charlie has his plate full, adding, “I have had some family stuff going on so just trying to stay focused and stay positive and keep trying to do a good job at work and be with my family and stay positive.” Hunnam’s father passed away in May, leading the actor to return to his native England to spend time with his family.
Charlie is currently finishing up Season 6 of “Sons of Anarchy,” after which he’s planning to go to England again, for even more family time. “Then I have a film that I am doing with Guillermo [del Toro]. So I am going to go and do that and concentrate on the final seasons of ‘Sons’,” he says.
He also says there’s a possibility the final season of “Sons” may run a bit longer, something creator Kurt Sutter alluded to during the TCA press tour. “There’s rumor that we might do a couple of more episodes and do a little bit of an extended season next year, so we will see if that happens,” Charlie explains. “It may or it may not. But I just want to finish that strong and go on to a new chapter of life.”
